Bioinformatician - Next Generation Sequencing
The Functional Genomics Center Zurich (FGCZ) is a joint core facility of the ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich that applies the latest omics technologies for biomolecular research and personalized medicine. The FGCZ Genome Informatics group supports researchers with the analysis and interpretation of next generation sequencing (NGS) data. Within that field the team covers raw data processing, high-performance computing, statistical evaluation, interpretation and integrated analysis. The team runs an excellent open source based software environment and establishes state-of-the-art data analysis concepts and algorithms.
The successful candidate will extend the existing Genome Informatics team and will collaborate with the Laboratory of Translational Nutritional Biology of ETH Zurich. The main responsibilities will be the reproducible analysis and interpretation of omics datasets. Additionally, she/he will develop, implement and maintain reusable data analysis workflows and provide bioinformatics support to the Zurich research community.
We are seeking a bioinformatician that is highly proficient in NGS data analysis and has very good scripting skills. The ideal candidate is highly communicative, team-oriented and is enthusiastic about statistical and bioinformatics analysis of NGS and other omics data in the field of nutritional biology. She/he is service-oriented and ready to keep up with the constant developments in the field. Advanced knowledge of English is essential as this is the working language; knowledge of German is helpful. We expect a degree in bioinformatics or a related field. The candidate needs to have working experience with GNU/Linux operating system and script-based NGS data analysis and bioinformatics. She/he has an in-depth knowledge of R/Bioconductor. Experience with database systems and knowledge of other languages like Java, Python or PHP represent a plus.
We look forward to receiving your online application with a full CV together with the usual documents. Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.
